Sen. Feinstein Hospitalized After Fall in Her California Home

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was hospitalized after a fall in her California home on Tuesday.

The health scare adds to a growing list of physical concerns for the 90-year-old Democrat.

"The fall comes as Feinstein’s health has come under increased scrutiny and amid reports that she has ceded power of attorney to her daughter Katherine in her legal affairs," Breitbart News reported.

"Feinstein appeared confused during a Senate Appropriations Committee vote several weeks ago, in which committee chair Patty Murray (D-WA) instructed her on how to vote. Feinstein had the option of saying 'aye' or 'no,' but began talking about why she supported the bill," it continued.

“She said she suffered no injuries and briefly went to the hospital as a precaution,” Schumer said. “I’m glad she is back home now and is doing well.”

"The San Francisco hospital visit comes after Feinstein missed months of work in Washington earlier this year when she was hospitalized for the shingles virus and its side effects. Since her return to work in May, she has traveled the Capitol halls in a wheelchair and has often appeared confused and disoriented," the Associated Press report added.

Feinstein has been in office since 1992 and has announced plans to retire after her term ends in 2024.

Multiple Democrats are campaigning for her position, including Reps. Katie Porter and Adam Schiff.

Some continue to push for Feinstein to resign or retire immediately, noting that she is no longer able to fulfill the duties of her role.

The controversy may continue but Feinstein looks determined to finish her term as Democrats back her final months in office.
